serious question can they eat it
>>
>>3249943
If you want to give toxoplasmosis to the cat and yourself, then yes, they can have a little salami. It's rare case but they also can get deadly cat diesases from pork. Ofc. it mostly works when you have uncooked meat, but I wouldn't risk it.

What are some popular pets that, in reality, are an absolute nightmare for people to take care of?

I wouldn't be surprised if only 1 out of 100 people take good care of a turtle. Whenever someone posts their setup it's shit like super shallow water, no good filtration, no appropriate basking spot, bad diet, etc. Then the animals slowly have to succumb to shell rot and vitamin deficiencies over the years.

Foxes are awful pets but are fun to take care of if you have no life and live in the woods

No data to back this up but I'm positive that the rate of successful goldfish keeping to at least ~7 years is less than 1%
>>
>>3249970
In my opinion turtles should not be kept indoors. Owners should have a pond or a large enough tank (ten gallons for every inch of shell length of turtle) or don't get a turtle at all.

What do I do bros?

Its basically a death sentence. Due to the fact it grows until it takes over the heart of the dog and kills it. Its preventable but hard to treat. The treatment is to give it shots, not let it excercise and essentially keep this up a year or two. If i remember right in some states it costs 500$ to a thousand.

>>3249552
well next dog, you treat for heartworms monthly
>>
>>3249573
I know this is bait but I laffin.
>>
>>3249693
It wasnt bait. I'm seriously asking.
Ive had dogs for several years. At least 10 years.
Never got heartworm. I was never reccomended by a vet. My dogs are inside dogs.

Tried google but failed to find it, it is about 9~10 inches long,

Thanks

And the life expectancy was in the 20s you retard. You literally refuted none of my points. Adrenaline pumping in an animal causes the meat to taste like shit. Hunting pigs with dogs is completely pointless.

Only after strict training. I've seen so many people with aggressive and uncontrollable germans, so I always assume it's going to be one and stay clear of them all of the time when I'm walking my dog. Just because a breed is seen as a very obedient and staple dog, doesn't mean your will be one without any training.

Leeches
The most horrifying creature of them all. It has haunted human civilizations since the beginning of time.
Not even lampreys and malaria mosquitos come close to the primal fear in humans leeches can provoke.

Hey, so,
My parents left me home alone with their dog for three days and she was fine for the first day but now she has retreated into their bedroom and its been like 24 hours since since she last went outside to take a piss or shit.
Should I be worried?
I tried baiting her with pizza, but apparently she is too smart for that and still wont leave the room.
I could remove her by force, but I really don't want to traumatize her.
should I just leave her alone?
I know she has eaten twice in the past 24 hours and not been outside once.

Okay so did the dog already know you? If not, it's probably just shy and will get over it.
>>
I often have to drag my lazy ass dog off the couch to go a walk, they don't take it personally trust me
>>
No, I mean I'm mostly just concerned that she hasn't been out to have a shit or piss in over 24 hours now.
>>
I tried reasoning with her but she doesn't seem to give a fuck; probably doesn't have a single clue about what I'm saying anyway

How come there is no canine equivalent of the tiger? Wolves and some dog breeds are pretty big, but tigers are absolutely huge.
